    QUESTION: Is an entrepreneur born or made?

    I’m 50/50 on this. I think everyone is born an entrepreneur. All humans are creative beings by nature.

    Everyone is born with entrepreneurial traits such as drive, commitment, dedication, perseverance, passion, creativity and discipline. Think about when you were a child and you wanted your favorite toy – you did whatever it took to get it. Or when you imagined and acted out scenarios like teaching a class or running your own restaurant and made it seem so real. We all did it!

    Over the course of growing up, most of us tend to lose these traits simply because “life happens”. However, those who grow into true entrepreneurs are up for the adventure and allow these traits to grow and develop into valuable skills for the real world. It is these people who never lose the belief and passion for creation.

    Being a true entrepreneur, I have been asked countless amount of times what it is that I am passionate about. The answer is simple: “CREATION“. I live to create all things – whether it is a venture, business strategy or a dish for my beautiful fiance and family. Being able to watch something form from an idea into something tangible is what inspires me and gets my heart pumping.

    At the end of the day, I believe we are all born entrepreneurs. However, true entrepreneurs never lose those essential entrepreneurial traits to life. They continue to passionately believe in creation and truly want to make a difference in the world.

    Well, yes, I believe we're all born entrepreneurs. From the day we entered this world, we have already been equipped with all the survival instincts, and taught how we should run our lives properly. But of course, we still have got to master those skills for us to be even more successful.

    I also think that entrepreneurs are born rather than made as I think certain people just aren't cut out for the job.

    You can't teach a person how to become an entrepreneur in my opinion, they will have to have a sense of business that can't be taught, to be successful for one thing.

    I agree with all of you, @Nunzio Presta @dyanmarie25 @pwarbi entrepreneurs are born, not made. However, I don't think everyone reacts to those feelings of wanting to create for themselves and for work. They don't realize they can make their own businesses out of their ideas. Entrepreneurs mold themselves to take everything as it comes to them, and learn from every situation to better themselves and their product. So, in a way, maybe they're born and they make themselves into who they become?
